Otterton Neighbourhood Plan

Our Neighbourhood Plan referendum was held on 6th May,  alongside the elections for our County Councillor and for our Police & Crime Commissioner.
  • The outcome of the referendum was a resounding success, easily surpassing the required measure of 50% acceptance.
  • 91.5% of those who voted answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Do you want East Devon District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Otterton to help decide on planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
  • The turnout in the referendum was 47.9% - quite high by comparison with other neighbourhood plan votes in other areas of East Devon.
  • The referendum was organised by East Devon District Council (EDDC).
  • the plan remains in its current status until EDDC’s cabinet has ratified the result of the referendum – probably in early June.

What happens after the vote?

Assuming a ‘yes’ vote, the EDDC Cabinet has to ratify the plan; they meet monthly.  Assuming they do so (they haven’t rejected any yet) the plan is considered ‘made’ and is adopted as part of the Development Plan for East Devon.

Is anyone else in East Devon doing this?

Yes, referenda for Newton Poppleford and Farringdon took place on the same day as ours.  Both were also successful.  This now makes 19 neighbourhood plans that have been completed in East Devon.
